Catholic student sues Fairfax school board over transgender protections

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/catholic-student-sues-fairfax-school-board-over-transgender-protections/ar-BB1jume8?ocid=windirect&cvid=e467dfc14c914f6fa239c718d9e4932c&ei=48

Story by Karina Elwood (7 March 2024)

The lawsuit was filed by the conservative group America First Legal — founded by former Donald Trump adviser Stephen Miller — on behalf of an unnamed Fairfax high school senior. It alleges that the school district's policy, which allows students to use facilities that match their gender identity and requires the use of a students chosen pronouns and name, are "fundamentally at odds with her religious beliefs" as a practicing Roman Catholic.

In 2020, the Fairfax district adopted a policy that, among other things, establishes that students can use bathrooms and locker rooms that match their gender identity. Its student conduct handbook also says students could be disciplined for maliciously misgendering or deadnaming — calling someone by the name they no longer use — their peers.

The lawsuit filed this week in Fairfax Circuit Court states that, as a practicing Catholic, the student plaintiff does not believe that a person's sex can be altered, and the district's policy is unconstitutional because it forces her to either "violate her sincerely held religious beliefs" or risk getting disciplined for not using a transgender or nonbinary student's name or pronoun. It further alleges the policy discriminates on the basis of religion by requiring the student to use her school's single-use bathrooms to "be able to exercise her sincerely held religious beliefs."

Someone does not know the difference between "sex" and "gender".
We don't alter our sex. We become who we were born to be.

Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything.
Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't really you,
so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

Why are the Catholic student's beliefs about who should use what restroom more important than anyone else's beliefs about who should use what restroom?
